CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUP

  • Caregiver Support Group meets the first Thursday of every month.
  • 2:00 – 3:30 m.
  • Lower Level, First Presbyterian Church
  • Please use double glass doors on Hickory Street to enter the building.

Caregiving is a job which more and more people find themselves doing and it comes with no training or manual.  Caregivers give of their time, their energy, their money, sometimes even their jobs to make sure their loved one has a good quality of life.  Baby Boomers are the largest group finding themselves in the role of caregiving, but certainly not the only.

The caregivers support group is affiliated with the Alzheimer’s Association but is open to anyone who is a caregiver for a person with any disease or disability.  This group is for anyone who is a caregiver—be it a relative or a friend.  It will provide a way to share your caregiving journey with others, learn, and seek information in a supportive and confidential setting.  The group is led by Janet Goff, Nadine Sugden, and Holly Stolp.

If you are a caregiver please come.  If you know someone who is a caregiver, please tell them about it.  This group is open to anyone—you need not be Presbyterian.

Questions, please call the church office at 507-387-2160 or e-mail caregiversgroup@fpcmankato.org
